Welcome to STLMAPP!


St. Louis Metro Area Public Purchasing Association (STLMAPP) was chartered as Chapter One under the auspices of the National Institute of Government Purchasing, Inc. (NIGP) in 1976.  On behalf of STLMAPP members, the Board of Directors would like to extend an invitation to all public purchasing professionals to join us at any of our scheduled meetings.  The association provides its members a local place to meet quarterly and discuss topics that directly relate to the field of procurement.  Meetings provide an opportunity to network with peers, learn from speakers the latest ideas, keep up-to-date with policies and best practices that affect the procurement profession, as well as obtain information on upcoming professional development courses.  We look forward to seeing you!
